As stated in the AGI Constitution and Bylaws, the Member Society Council chair will appoint a Nominating Committee within 30 days of his or her installation to nominate candidates for officers and awards. The five-member committee consists of the immediate past president and preceding available past president of AGI, and three additional Council members. The Member Society Council chair also will appoint a special nominating committee to handle the Ian Campbell Medal.


  • Name one nominee for the office of vice president/president-elect during the first quarter of the calendar year, and in alternate years name one nominee for secretary, one for treasurer, and one for member at large. Those eligible for nomination are past and current members of the Member Society Council, members of the former AGI Governing Board, and those who have held office in an AGI member society within the past five years.

  • Solicit from member societies nominations for the William B. Heroy Jr., Award for Distinguished Service to AGI and submit its final selection and documentation to the Executive Committee for final action.

  • Seek nominations for the AGI Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Public Understanding of Geology, and at the spring meeting, submit its selection to the Member Society Council, who transmits its recommendation to the Executive Committee for final action.

  • Coordinate the nomination of earth-science candidates for the following national awards for scientific achievement: Vannevar Bush Award, National Medal of Science Award, William T. Pecora Award, and Alan T. Waterman Award.

  • The Ian Campbell Medal is given in recognition of singular performance in and contribution to the profession of geology. The Chair of the Member Society Council appoints a special nominating committee for recommendation of candidates for the award. The committee consists of five members - current representatives to the AGI Member Society Council from the Association of American State Geologists, the Geological Society of America, and the Mineralogical Society of America; and two at-large representatives from the remaining member society representatives.
